Capers and Heists Define New Series

foxohareDubbed “The Fox and O’Hare” novels, the new series will appeal to anyone who enjoys caper movies like Ocean’s Eleven, Ally Carter’s Heist Society teen book series, or The Thomas Crown Affair (either one).

  • described as “an electrifying new series featuring an FBI agent who always gets her man, and a fearless con artist who lives for the chase”
  • cowritten by popular mystery/romance author Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg, who wrote mysteries based on TV’s Monk
  • features the witty conversation, unexpected plot twists, zany supporting characters, and delicious romantic tension that readers love in Janet Evanovich’s long-running Stephanie Plum series
  • the series stays fast-paced and fun, but leaves you wanting more

The Heist introduces FBI Special Agent Kate O’Hare  and the man she’s been chasing for the last five years, international con man and thief Nicolas Fox. When she finally gets her man, Kate is thrilled and horrified that her bosses cut a deal and offer him a job, working in secret to help catch the truly bad guys in creative ways.

The Chase provides Kate and Nick with a new target – a powerful and ruthless leader who has stolen a rare Chinese artifact from the Smithsonian. The duo have only a week to steal the piece back before the Chinese delegate returns the fake in the museum to China and sparks a diplomatic nightmare between the two countries.

Coming in November 2014 - The Job gives Kate and Nick a shared purpose – someone is stealing artwork dressed obviously as Nick Fox – but why? What outlandishly complicated caper must Kate and Nick accomplish to complete The Job that someone obviously needs them to pull off?

What are you waiting for? Go check these out!  I raced through these novels and I’ve been recommending them like crazy! I  can’t wait to read the next one.

I’m always looking for my next great read – do you have a caper or heist story to recommend?
